    Fill the holes with plastic wood, let dry. You may have to fill them again as the plastic wood will shrink as it dries. Once completely filled, sand them down to a smooth finish...

    Exactly. Then paint.

    The plastic wood will work just fine but I would suggest filling the hole with a "cork" of styrofoam or other space-taking mat'l. If you use only pw, do it in layers to shorten the drying time.

    If you're talking about cabinet doors, forget what I just said. For small holes I like to use toothpicks and my filler. PW if the repair will show, simple white glue if I'm repairing something like a stripped hinge screw hole.

    Bondo makes an excellent wood putty (not the kind of putty you use for body work, they make that as well). The only place I have found it was on line at Amazon. No stores near me sell it, even the big box stores.

    Wood filler or good old puddy
